ROC: Rochester Joins Gabrielle Leonhard O'Connell Tasting


Rochester Joins Gabrielle Leonhard O'Connell Tasting

Join us on Wednesday, March 31th, 2021 at 8 pm ET as the Rochester Chapter joins the National Virtual event for an intimate conversation with Gabrielle Leonhard O'Connell from O'Connell Family Wines and Gabrielle Collection GC Napa Valley Lifestyle. Gabrielle is a Past National President of Women For WineSense and is our 2020 Lifetime Achievement award winner.

Wine as a catalyst to an elevated Lifestyle. A lifestyle inspired by the love of the Napa Valley and with wine regions of the world, inspired a motto for Gabrielle Leonhard O'Connell: Wine + Food + Well-being is a Life Well Lived. This philosophy is expressed in the winery experiences of O'Connell Family Wines, founded by Gabrielle and husband, Wayne O'Connell. Wine with thoughtful food pairings, accented by in-house produced culinary, spa, pooch and artisan products produced from ingredients farmed at their certified organic Vineyard Estate Gardens. Repurposing is key to their sustainability practices, resulting in charming entertaining pieces created from their used barrels. Their estate vineyard site dates to the the 1850's when it was named the best vineyard land in California by the California Agricultural Society, today's Dept of Agriculture. The vineyard was actively producing grapes until mid-Prohibition, after which the O'Connells were the first to replant.


We have 24 tasting sets of the two wines Gabrielle will feature during the event available to our members. The cost for the tasting set is $15. Member's cost to have a non-member guest join us is $20. The Zoom link for the event will be sent to all registered attendees along with where you can pick up the wines on Wednesday morning.
